As of 12am 1st December 2021 Challengers can now officially enter the next edition of the oldest trophy in international sport.
Kevin Shoebridge, COO of Emirates Team New Zealand said, “The Defender, RNZYS & Emirates Team New Zealand, have had very positive initial interest since the release of the Protocol of the 37th America’s Cup, feedback and interest from prospective teams, both existing and new has been very encouraging.”
Soon after the entry period opening several challengers were received by the RNZYS and Emirates Team New Zealand.
The period for Challengers to enter runs until 31st July 2022, but late entries for the 37th America’s Cup may be accepted until 31st May 2023.
The order of entry determines the allocation of their AC40 yachts and team bases at the venue of the 37th America’s Cup.
Aaron Young, Commodore of the RNZYS said, “Certainly this is a really positive indication and start to the 37th America’s Cup, which I think is a reflection on all of the incredible work that has been going on over the past 8 months by ETNZ and the RNZYS which has set a solid foundation for a successful 37th America’s Cup.”
